The town that keeps on giving. Most places have a nice area and then it stops around the next corner. Bernkastel-Kues just keeps on delivering; every street, every square is more pretty than the previous, and so it goes on… (or so it seems). Chocolate box stuff here […]
We’re now on the Mosel in Germany and at 6am this morning it was beautiful…
There’s no theme to these; just what attracted my eyes as I wandered from ‘German Corner’ where the Rhine meets the Mosel towards the old town. Some you may like, some you may loathe. You’ll be glad I squeezed some bicycles in there… Enjoy!
A relaxing morning in Koblenz during which nothing bicycle- or cycling-related happened (well, apart from me finding the first EuroVelo 15 sign…). So it’s just the sightseeing today I’m afraid. The Rough Guide didn’t big up the city – “not many attractions” – but I found a sufficient […]

The ship hasn’t been far today; an early morning arrival in Strasbourg (from Mannheim – see previous post…) and we’ve been moored here – adjacent to the EuroVelo 15 of all things – ever since. Rainy outside but I did spend an amiable few hours wandering the streets […]
Well this is all new to me. But I have to admit, I’m already missing the bike. Let me recap… As you may recall (because I told you in this post only last week), I have been asked to deliver some talks on a river cruise boat along […]
